Overview

McCall Richter finds criminals, con men, and deadbeats better than anyone else in the empire.

She’s proud of her success and that she owns her own spaceship, especially since she struggles to understand human motivations, can’t tell when people are lying to her, and is horrible at recognizing faces. Being autistic in the empire is frowned upon—and there’s a handy normalization surgery to correct it—but she’s managed to prove her worth and avoid irking the tyrannical regime.

Except for one thing.

Two years ago, she liberated the android, Scipio, from an imperial research facility where he was treated worse than a slave. He’s become her business partner and best friend, but if the empire finds out she has him, a “normalization” surgery will be the least of her worries.

When her ship is confiscated by a cyborg law enforcer needing to transport prisoners, McCall knows she and Scipio are in trouble. Worse, the enforcer’s pilot is a former bounty hunter and business competitor she beat to the prize many times in the past.

Soon, he’s snooping all over her ship and questioning her about her past.

And there's something strange about him. He knows far more about what she’s thinking than any human should.

It’ll only be a matter of time before he discovers her secret. And then what?

I really enjoy the unlikely McCall character with her quirks and character flaws yet the resourceful hero. Would like to see more with Dash.

A great story line - something fresh in the genre. There were a few fill-in-the-blank sequences that made me want more detail, but it was easy to follow. The dynamics between McCall and Dash, and McCall’s hidden strength beg for more adventure. Please write more with these > two characters. Nice work

I loved the characters McCall, Dash, Scipio and Junkyard! I want more and I especially want to read more about the androids. What are their names and personalities? Please take the story further!

Loved it and I hope there are more books with these characters. Scipio is fascinating, Junkyard is a hoot and now with a personal android squad, I can't wait to see what happens with the Alliance, as well as her new pilot beau.

I enjoyed this well paced science fiction novel with a well done slow burn romance. I liked the writing style of the author and this was a great read. McCall made for a great main character and her autism gave her an unique touch and felt realistically done. I liked the side characters, although i am a bit sad we don't see more of Scipio and Junkyard in this book. The romance was a well done slow burn and it was clear these two cared for each other, there are some great scenes with these two and some fun banter. The world building was done well too, with little pieces here and there to give a feel for the world. I enjoyed this book and plan to check out more books by this author.
